Heart of England
The Heart of England region has an extensive history but is also a major player in the 21st century. If your interest is history there are castles including Warwick, Kenilworth, Stokesay and Berkeley. Industrial history can be seen in the Ironbridge Gorge and cities such as Coventry and Birmingham. There are several battlefield sites from the English Civil War and Wars of the Roses. If you prefer nature there are the glorious Cotswolds and the beauty of Shropshire.
